Christmas was absolutely wonderful around here!! We had such a great time with my family from Monday through Thursday. We went to a Christmas party at the Shireman's on Christmas Eve Eve which was super fun (as always). We look forward to their party every year, we get to catch up with a lot of lifelong friends while we are there. Thanks Shireman's for having us!!
Then on Christmas Eve we cooked all day and went to mass. We had a lovely meal for dinner and got in bed early so that Santa could come. He was really good to us this year! We got everything we wanted, and then some.
After we finished Christmas with my family we headed south to see Jared's fam and spend Christmas evening with them, where we had another HUGE meal and many more presents. I don't think I can fit into the jeans that Santa brought after these last two days :)
Thanks everyone for such wonderful food, presents and fun! We are so thankful for the time that we were able to spend with our families during this holiday season and look forward to many more fun times in the future.
Today I went shopping with all of my Christmas gift cards (they burn a hole in my pocket) and I found some great deals!! I haven't seen 70% off in a really long time, if ever at some of those stores, so I was glad to take full advantage!
We hope that everyone had a great Christmas!!!!
Here are some pics from the past week!

Yea! I'm so glad that Louie loved his treats. Bonnie was so disappointed that majority of the batch I baked went to gifts. That was a super sweet comment you left. I hope you guys have a great New Years!
